Professor, Human Health Sciences
I received my Doctor of Medicine from Aristotle University in Greece. After specializing in orthopedics in the United Kingdom, I practiced medicine in Europe and the United States. An active scholar, I have presented my work at the College of Surgeons, the Human Anatomy and Physiology Society, and other international societies. I was elected a fellow of the Royal Society of Medicine and am a sought-after speaker at international conferences on obesity-associated degenerative joint diseases. As a Human Health Sciences professor at Nevada State College, I have taught several upper- and lower-division courses and draw heavily on my medical experiences to provide students with practical, real-world perspectives on medicine. I help students understand the mechanics of the human body through intense and thorough dissection of cadavers and examination of the pathology present. I am also devoted to giving back to the global community and I actively participate in worldwide medical missions aimed at providing much needed medical care to impoverished and underserved communities in developing countries. By bringing Nevada State students on these medical missions, I aim to instill this commitment to serving our global community in our future health care providers.
Dr. Kebede regularly teaches: Biol 223 (Human Anatomy & Physiology I), Biol 224 (Human Anatomy & Physiology II), Biol 428 (Medical Gross Anatomy) and Biol 461 (Global Health).
